Seafood Wednesday: Baked Cod with Tomatoes and Onions

Exactly a week ago (as of yesterday when I made this dish), all 33 miners and the rescuers made it to the surface safe and sound. Last week I skipped Seafood Wednesday because we had a small 'asado' or grilled meat to celebrate the success of the operation. I even got to sing the national anthem with my family and millions of Chileans who were watching the rescue from their homes, at the Mina San Jose, and other places around the world. It has been an event that has touched my heart.

So yesterday's dish was first of all dedicated to my family and to Chile and to anyone who loves fish. 

Want to give it a shot? 

1. Place cod in a bowl and season it with salt (i used sea salt) and black pepper. 

2. Make some fresh lemon juice and add it to the fish. Let it stand while you continue making the other parts of the dish. 

3. Melt some butter in a pan and add onions. 

4. Add paprika or 'aji color' (it's a type of chile powder) to the onions.  Cook until the onions are tender/soft. 

5. Add peeled and diced tomatoes to the mixture. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Just enough so the tomatoes are cooked. 

(It is Chilean tradition to peel the tomatoes. I've always been challenged in this aspect even though I am Chilean, ha! This time, however, I peeled the tomatoes in no time!) 
6. Then use a clay baking bowl if you have one or a regular glass bakeware. Have the potatoes cut up and diced and make a layer of them.

7. Then make a layer of the tomatoes with onions mixture.

8. Top it with the fish and bake at 350 for about 15-20 min. Just long enough so the fish is cooked. If you leave it too long, the fish and the mixture will dry. 

9. Serve with rice and garnish with lemons (and parsley if available)

10. This is my favorite salad: Lettuce with tomatoes and tuna. PERFECT salad to go with this dish!!!! 

11. Enjoy! 

~ Have a great day!

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
